I was a food lover first, then a wine lover. I've taken and passed the Level 1 exam through the Court of Master Sommeliers. Food and wine are my passions.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything with five stars on allrecipes.com :-) I enjoy cooking Italian and Mexican, and on weekends, I love getting busy with my electric smoker. BBQ is KING in Texas!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have three days of special Christmas dinners at our house: December 23, latkes; December 24, lasagne; December 25, traditional turkey and trimmings.
My cooking triumphs
I made a boeuf bourguignon that would have made Julia proud.
My cooking tragedies
Tough steak and undercooked potatoes.
